Maharastra, Sep 07, 2018 : The political cacophony in Maharashtra refuses to end. In the latest, a former cabinet minister and Congress leader Subodh Savji has announced a Rs 5-lakh reward for chopping off the tongue of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Ram Kadam.
Speaking to news agency ANI, Savji said he is announcing a Rs 5-lakh reward for anyone who chops off BJP MLA Kadam’s tongue.
"I strongly condemn his statement saying girls should be abducted (if they refuse a boy’s proposal). It is unbecoming of an MLA to say such things," Savji said.
He said he is announcing to the people of Maharashtra that he will reward Rs 5-lakh cash to anyone who "chops off this dirty tongue".

On Monday, speaking at an event in his assembly constituency in Mumbai, Kadam had told youngsters that they could tell him if they liked a girl and he would "abduct" her for them even if she rejected their proposal.
The Maharashtra State Commission for Women has issued a notice to Kadam over his remark and has sought his reply.
